Have you Heard of...

Bountiful Baskets??? I'm sure most of you have! It's a great way to save big bucks on fruits and veggies! If you live out in Vail,AZ the pick up is next week, and then every 2 weeks after that. You go to between 9am on Tuesday and 10pm on Wednesday to order. They are a non profit company, you pay 15$ for the fruit and veggies plus 1.50$ shipping and handling and you get 2 baskets full of produce, one fruit and one veggie (it's the smaller round baskets, the two combined fit into 1 regular sized laundry basket). Anytime I've gone to the store to price all the fun and yummy produce it normally comes out to about 40$ worth of produce! ,The only thing though is that you don't get to pick what you get, you're given a variety or 6 fruits and 6 veggies so you get to try new things, I never liked Brussel sprouts until we got them in our basket and we tried a new yummy recipe for them! They also provide add ons to the basket, for example, the pie pumpkins my sister and I bought 2 weeks ago was through bountiful baskets! They were an add on to the basket - it was 6$ for 2 pie pumpkins and 2 mini pumpkins, we also ordered basket ball size jack'o'lanterns for 3.50$ (the same size were costing 6-7$ at safeway). They also have fresh baked goodies like breads and cookies as add ons from local bakeries. We love bountiful baskets and if you haven't tried it you should! It's a great deal!

  1. I might have to get your recipe for brussel sprouts. I still don't really care for them that much. I DO love Bountiful Baskets though!
